1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    One scary woman..it just goes to show that all you need to be a politician in some parts of the world, ours included, is to fool the ignorant..and it is even scarier that there are so many of them around..

    Scary indeed, but refreshing to see that some initial associates and converts are beginning to see through to what she really is. I just hope the wheels come off before she can do any serious damage to anything other than the Republican Party. The more idiotic, unstable, tantrum-prone, self-serving, egotistical and incoherent she proves over the next two years the better IMO.

    I read the first page, then got distracted by some celeb tittle-tattle. I assume Palin=swivel-eyed loon, with reactionary religious topping?

    All that plus aggressive manipulative temper-tantrum throwing sociopath.

    Isn't American politics f***ing pathetic giving her even some credibility.

    Our Right Wing are that looney and desperate.

    Keeping in mind that we don't really have a Left Wing, just an extreme Right and a moderately Right...

    I'd settle for her winning the republican primary and then self-destructing during the campaign.

    yup I cant see the vested interests allowing Palin to progress too far, though you never can tell with a populist right wing cheer leader who has tapped into something very big and stinky

    There were vested interests in Germany in the 1930s who thought an uncouth, rabble-rousing little Austrian ex-soldier could be of use, and then discarded...

    One useful thing that the article did was bring up the word "Dominionist". This is a church movement that believes that, prior to the Second Coming, the Kingdom of God, i.e. theocratic government, has to be already established. Palin's Wassila church is very much in this mould, and I believe that others are even mouldier. Far from being just a bunch of religious fruitcakes, I think this movement, especially with the natural religiosity of Americans and the Republican Party pushing it as a means of getting into power, is extremely dangerous. In this regard, Charles Blow's column and diagram in Saturday's NYT are very interesting:

    you raised the very historical parallel I was squeamish about doing......

    That's the ideal for sure. Let's hope idiots like Glenn Beck help turn it into a reality.

    This is what she said in response to the VF article:

    Glad she cleared that up then.

    "Truthiness", the new gospel according to the American right. Look it up, it's pretty scary.
    Basically they KNOW they're right 'cos GOD (and Jesus) tells them and it can't be disproved.
